Curvy and beautiful

Good Morning,
I can’t believe that it’s December already! Like the rest of you I am busy making cards for family and friends.
Today I would like to share a card I made using
I can’t say how happy I am to have found this ‘fluffy’ range of digital stamps.
Yeah, images that celebrate curves and ladies with ‘normal’ body shape!
These images are perfect for my beautiful niece, and so, here is her Christmas card.

The image is coloured with Promarkers.
The divine paper is from Giadolls - here.
I fussy cut some of the elements and mounted them on foam pads for the outer panels of the card.
The glitter is glass glitter from Chloe’s Creative Crafts.
The sentiment was made on the PC.
